Bladnoch 25 (SMWS 50.72 – Summer’s Night in Lovers’ Lane)
Cask Type: Re-fill ex-Bourbon
Nose: Apple, honey, butter, dried Chinese plum, vanilla, grass, orange, floral
Palate: Melon, raspberry, butter, biscuit, ginger, apple, grassy
Finish: Long finish, white pepper, oak tannins, mineral
Creamy, fruity nose, with a great balance of sweetness, and floral note. The palate wasn’t as lush and thick as the nose would suggest, the fruit is still present, with a nice biscuit-y note, grassiness, and minerals joining the pack. Overall rather interesting dram to try, but not something I would buy.
